Medical Marijuana in New Jersey
Welcome to Pain Management of New Jersey, one of the most experienced and trusted sources for medical marijuana in the nation.
Legislation recently signed into law by Governor Corzine ensures residents of New Jersey of the right to possess and use medical marijuana under certain circumstances. The goal of this website is to both inform you about the law and help you make the right decision about whether medical marijuana is right for you.
In the coming months, Pain Management of America plans to set up medical marijuana dispensaries throughout New Jersey. For New Jersey residents suffering from the effects of cancer, glaucoma, ALS, HIV/AIDS and a host of other debilitating illnesses, we plan to be an invaluable resource not only for medical marijuana itself, but for information that will help you better understand MM's benefits.
Marijuana has been used for millennia as a natural medicine. In fact, cannabis was even sold by pharmaceutical companies in the United States until the federal government outlawed its possession and use in 1937. In recent years, the body of evidence suggesting marijuana may be an effective palliative for those suffering from chronic or terminal illness has grown and advocates have renewed calls for medical marijuana to be legalized. So far, 14 states (including New Jersey) have enacted legislation or passed referenda that permits the use of this time-honored medicine.
For those in New Jersey suffering from debilitating illness, the prospect of finally being permitted to use medical marijuana may be both welcome and discomfiting. Here are answers to some commonly asked questions about procuring and using medical marijuana in New Jersey.
Q: May I grow medical marijuana myself?
A: No. Unlike other states where medical marijuana is permitted by law, New Jersey's citizens are not allowed to grow their own medical marijuana. This means they must rely on the services of medical marijuana dispensaries. At first, New Jersey will be limited to only six dispensaries, two in northern New Jersey, two in the central region, and two in the southern region. In time, more licensed dispensaries will open.
Q: Who qualifies for a permit to use medical marijuana?
A: Only those suffering from chronic or terminal illnesses as specifically outlined in New Jersey's medical marijuana legislation qualifies for a license from the state to possess and use medical marijuana. Our experienced advisors will consult with you at no charge to determine whether you qualify. If you do, our professionals can guide you through the full process of becoming a state-licensed medical marijuana patient in New Jersey.
Q: How can I be sure the medical marijuana I receive is pure and of the highest quality?
A: When a Pain Management of America dispensary opens in New Jersey, you can be assured of the highest-quality medical marijuana available. Our master growers are experts in cultivating medical marijuana that is 100% organically-grown and consistent from dose to dose.
Q: Why should I choose a Pain Management of America dispensary?
A: We are among the most experienced and professional dispensary companies in the United States today. All of the medical marijuana we provide to patients, whether in New Jersey or in any of the other states where we operate, is guaranteed to be free of pesticides and additives. We control every step in the cultivation process and ensure all our medical marijuana is of the highest quality.
Q: I don't want to smoke medical marijuana -- are there other methods of ingesting it?
A: Yes. While smoking medical marijuana is the most common form of ingesting this time-honored medicine, other methods are available. You may bake the medical marijuana into food such as breads or cakes or even blend it into fruit smoothies. If you don't wish to prepare the foods yourself, restaurant quality baked goods, candies, and other items are available at our dispensaries. Finally, many patients prefer to vaporize their medical marijuana. This method involves heating the medicine without burning it and inhaling its vapors. Our professional consultants will be happy to help you find the method of ingestion that's right for you.
Q: When will a Pain Management of America dispensary open near me?
A: As one of the nation's most trusted medical marijuana dispensaries, demand for our services is high. Currently, we're working with New Jersey officials to set up dispensary locations throughout the state. Check our website often for updates, or sign up today for e-mail notifications.
